Fortnite Battle Royale’s Heavy Sniper Incoming This Week

When users search for "fortnite" on Google Play, they're now presented with a special message reading "Fortnite Battle Royale by Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play". But as rumours anticipated, Fortnite Beta on Android finally arrived with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but it's not entirely exclusive as expected.

Experienced users may have zero troubles with this, but more casual users may find themselves intimidated by the security prompts upon sideloading an APK file, so we thought we'd make things a bit easier for them.

Epic Games' decision to not list Fortnite on Play Store is a huge loss for Google. However, Google's Play Store is now apparently taking action against this. Fans can download the game directly from Epic's website instead, and market intelligence company Sensor Tower said that move could cost Google at least $50 million in platform fees this year. This is why the installer for "Fortnite Android" will ask players to turn off the access that it was granted while installing the app once it is done. They're also concerned that users who look for the game on Google Play could be fooled into downloading suspicious copycat apps that may be trying to take advantage of Fortnite's absence to scam mobile users. In fact, Google Play is informing its users that the game is not available for download on its store.

You need to be logged in to post a comment. Epic Games is sending out codes in waves, which could mean that hundreds, possibly thousands, of people are receiving codes every day. The game can't be downloaded through PlayStore. Epic Games has bypassed the store when it launched on Android.

The Week 6 challenges for the game's fifth season have also been leaked, though the full details on how some of the challenges will unfold have yet to be truly determined.

You may want to watch out for the newest Fortnite weapon.

Because of the said reasons, security researchers stated that Epic Games' ruling presents a risky situation for downloaders because it will encourage people to disable the default security protection from their devices. The hint of the new weapon being launched was found in the game itself when players were greeted by a loading screen that teased a new weapon.
